Covid 19 Precautions
This information and the policies here are subject to change in accordance with state, local and national mandates. Last updated May 12,2020
We are working behind the scenes to clean and disinfect the studio pre-opening and come up with daily cleaning schedules so you feel comfortable attending classes. We have taken ideas and suggestions from the healthcare community and will be initiating the following protocols to ensure the space is CDC compliant and you stay healthy.
Items Allowed in the Studio
In order to minimize risk, only the following items will be allowed into the studio. All items must be in a small bag that you can hang on a hook. Please leave all large bags and purses in your trunk. Items cannot be left in the lobby unattended.
In your bag that can be hung on a hook:
Dance Shoes (if applicable)
Mat (can be carried)
Symptom Free For 2 Weeks
All clients will be asked to attest to a wellness screening form prior to class. Your temperature will be taken with a touchless thermometer before each class.
You must be able to answer NO to all the following to attend classes.
I affirm that WITHIN THE LAST 14 DAYS I have had:
No contact with a confirmed Covid 19 victim
No member of my household currently has or is recovering from Covid-19
No fever, fatigue, cough, difficulty breathing
No travel outside Texas or the USA
NEW! Touch Free Everything!
Upgraded Faucets, Soap Dispensers & Bathroom Lights
We have upgraded our faucets and soap dispensers to touch free units to minimize touching high traffic surfaces. We have also installed touch free light switches in both bathrooms, and changed the trashcans out to have an open top.
We have purchased 3 commercial grade air purifiers with H13 filters that are able to filter out virus particles. According to their labels, they are capable of filtering the air in the entire room every 30 minutes.
Hospital Grade Disinfectant
Different equipment requires different disinfecting.
Pole: We have always provided you your own personal towel and spray bottle with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol, as recommended by the CDC.
Aerial: We use a combination of vodka and essential oils sprayed on the fabric after each use and allowed to dry. Cleaning wipes or hospital grade disinfectant can be used on some parts of our hard apparatuses. We are also planning classes to not be back to back on the same apparatus to allow for more time between contact.
Floors & Mats: We have purchased hospital grade disinfectants to be used after every class and each night.
We have designed our new class schedule to negate the need for equipment sharing. It will always be one person to each apparatus until further notice, and all equipment already meets or exceeds social distancing guidelines.
Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to provide you with yoga mats or straps. We are providing disposable bags that can be placed over the yoga blocks to ensure 1 time touch. However, we recommend you bring your own items if you are interested in using them for your practice.
We are concerned masks pose a safety risk during physical activity such as ours, since they decrease your body's ability to oxygenate your muscles efficiently and can trap carbon dioxide inside the mask reducing the amount of oxygen your body absorbs. This increases the potential for hyperventilating or fainting.
Therefore, wearing a facemak while participating in class is OPTIONAL, as long as the client abides by all the other the social distancing protocols. You are more than welcome to wear a mask, but if you experience lightheadedness, shortness of breath or tingling in your extremities, we will escort you outside to help you catch your breath and ensure you are ok.
We request that all participants arrive wearing a mask and to wear a mask in all common areas. All front desk staff will be wearing masks during class times.
Emergency Spotting ONLY
To ensure your health and maintain social distancing guidelines, we will be attempting to create curriculum that does not require hands on spotting. As a client, please understand that if we feel your life is in danger, you may come into contact with us.
We want to decrease everyones exposure to each other. Only students will be allowed in the building. We ask that you not wait between classes in the lobby, and always have a mask entering and exiting the facility. Please remain in your car until 10 minutes prior to class.
Although Governor Abbott mentioned recently that "gyms" will need clients to wear gloves when working out, that is just impractical for what we do. We will not be requiring class participants to wear gloves. We will however, insist everyone wash their hands prior to class at the studio. We have installed touch free faucets, soap dispensers & light switches in the bathrooms to ensure you do not have to touch any high traffic surfaces.
